River Mole, Leatherhead, Common Meadow

I’ve been concentrating on using watercolours recently and have been working on some landscapes, concentrating on getting trees and water looking balanced.

This scene is where I walk Molly regularly, following the Mole to a flood plain known locally as the Common Meadow. The walk is a large loop round the meadow and is a great place for Molly as she can swim in the river, roll around in the grass and meet other dogs. I also take a few seconds to look out for any bird life on the river and can normally see Kingfishers, Herons, Cormorants, Little Egrets and Little Grebes plus the usual ducks, swans, moorhens and coots. Even a Goosander if I’m lucky.
